PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Judging by Wednesdayâ€™s bookkeeping, Senior Corps-RSVP Director Janeen Love said more than 415 Jefferson County kids will benefit from the annual Toys for Tots Christmas campaign.
Toys for Tots â€” operated by Community Action on behalf of the Marine Corps Reserve â€” had collection boxes placed at area businesses throughout November and December and provides eligible, registered children with three big toys and a grab-bag.
This yearâ€™s campaign collected close to 1,700 toys in total, Love said.
â€śMost of the people we serve, this is their Christmas,â€ť she said, gesturing to the tables of toys. â€śWe thank all of the local businesses and community members for donating. We couldnâ€™t have done Toys for Tots without the support of the community.â€ť
